OA literature:

. . . scientific and scholarly research texts that authors give to publishers and readers without asking for any kind of royalty or payment (source of quote). The quote is tied to a call by the Open Society Institute, the foundation network founded by philanthropist George Soros, for the open access concept to be applied to academic publishing. The call was made at the Budapest Open Access Initiative, a meeting held at the end of 2001.

OA is an acronym for open access.

The term academic publishing refers to research and scholarly work made available for peer review and critique through journals, books, theses and the like. The emergence of search tools along with the advent of Internet has now expanded the access and exchange of useful research and scholarly work beyond the narrow circle of academia.

More information about OA literature is available in open access form at the website of the library of the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, MI. The reference is to a . . . research guide provides readers with a basic understanding of Open Access literature (source of quote). The guide's definition of open access is posted elsewhere it this glossary.
